Jean shorts will always be one of my closet essentials. I have worn them for so many years, across so many seasons. They typically get the rap that they are ‘only for the Summer’ but I’m here to tell you – this is false!!!! I actually love them in the Fall and Winter because they can easily be layered with chunky sweaters, tights, OTK boots, booties, a great blazer… so many versatile options. Whenever I switch my closets out for the season I make sure to keep my jean shorts as a year round staple.
Here I styled them with one of my most favorite pieces in my closet…. I’ve worn this blazer before (here) as one of my very first blog posts. My Elizabeth and James ostrich feather blazer I have had for YEARS and I can never part with it. Feathers are back in a huge way this season and this blazer always adds a special extra spice to any outfit. My bow pumps…. very old, but also – so special I can never part with them. I found a bunch of similar pairs like this one, this one, and this splurge-worthy pair. Stripes were a nice way to break up the all black… plus they are perfect for fall! I’m obsessed with my Splendid Venice Stripe Turtleneck which can also be dressed down with jeans + I love this price point #UNDER100! In order to transition your jean shorts for the Fall – work with a darker color palette, keep things simple, and add on with a fun item such as a blazer, chunky sweater, or standout shoe!
This is going to be the busiest work week + my best friends wedding is coming up this weekend so A LOT of exciting happenings! As always, thank you guys for stopping by! x A
